Method

  1. Put the lemon zest and juice, garlic, tarragon and olive oil in a shallow, non-metallic dish and stir together. Season with salt and pepper, then add the salmon fillets. Turn them to coat in the mixture, rubbing it in to the fish well. Cover and set aside for 10 mins.
  2. Remove the salmon from the marinade and wrap in foil, if barbecuing. Cook for 5-8 mins over hot coals until just cooked through. (Alternatively, heat the grill to high and put the salmon fillets on a baking sheet. Grill for 7-10 mins, until just cooked through.) Serve with a couscous and rocket salad.

Made this yesterday and it went down so well with everyone. Served it with cracked new potatoes and beans. Delicious. Will be making it again as it is quick and easy!

This is lovely and so simple. I serve it with lime and coriander couscous or the herby pomegranate Couscous recipe and a salad.

We had this dish for dinner this evening and really enjoyed it. I reduced the amount of oil stated in the recipe as salmon is such an oily fish. The tarragon has a lovely subtle flavour & I love any opportunity to use garlic! Handy tip: tarragon can be chopped and stored in the freezer in an airtight container. So, you can always have some on standby & it tastes just as good as fresh tarragon when used in cooked dishes. I served it with baby potatoes (halved, drizzled with olive oil, seasoned and roasted for about 20 mins. Add whole garlic cloves and chopped rosemary & thyme and roast for another 10 mins. Toss in balsamic vinegar. Yum!) & steamed green veg.

Really Lovely, I cooked this for 2, but I only reduced the number of Salmon fillets used, I also only used 1tsp of olive oil.

Simple and delicious, I replaced the tarragon with a generous amount of parsley and coriander because that's what I had in the bottom of the fridge and even the OH enjoyed it and he's not fond of salmon.
